As a Russian star with several pro seasons under his belt, Kirill Kaprizov adapted quickly to the NHL. This led to strong demand for the Kirill Kaprizov rookie cards.
Although he was selected by the Minnesota Wild in the 2015 NHL Draft, he did not join the team until the 2020-21 season, spending most of that time in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) with CSKA Moscow.
There are several notable names in the 2020-21 NHL rookie class, but it was not long before Kaprizov made his claim for the top rookie. This was cemented when he was awarded the Calder Memorial Trophy as the rookie of the year for 2020-21.
Fans can find Kirill Kaprizov rookie cards in many of the 2020-21 hockey card sets from Upper Deck. It is worth pointing out that the initial options come as redemptions.
He also has earlier cards from his KHL career, starting with 2016-17 cards for Salavat Yulaev Ufa.
